Monthly Wrap Up

The month that was… July 2021

Another month in which I’m late in posting my monthly wrap up! This is getting to be something of a habit… ๐Ÿ˜ฌ This time it was due to a few blissful days away, both physically as I visited Hay-on-Wye as well as taking a break from social media and blogging. I’m now back and feeling very much refreshed! As an aside, the Hay Festival site looks very odd without the tents and festival venues in place… the sheep seemed to like the additional space though… ๐Ÿ˜€

July has been a slightly better month from a reading and blogging perspective. I’ve posted a little more regularly, although my reading still seems to have slowed down somewhat from what I’m used to. I’m enjoying the books I’m reading however, so I’m not going to focus on the numbers too much โ€“ I’d much rather have quality over quantity.

July is Booker Prize longlist month, and I posted both my predictions for the longlist, as well as the actual longlist once revealed. It is, as ever, an interesting mix of novels, and while I don’t intend to attempt the full longlist, there are definitely a few titles here that I’ll try to read and review before the shortlist is announced in September.

20 Books of Summer

I’ve read 15 of my 20 books of summer, but I’ve only managed to review 11 of them so far. Reviews may come thick and fast this month as I try to get back on track… assuming I can actually get them written, that is…


I received three books for review this month:

And purchased nine:

TBR Watch

It’s going the wrong way! ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • Books out = 9 read + 0 DNF = 9
  • Books in = 3 ARCs + 9 purchases = 12
  • Equals an increase of 3 in my TBR
